Alpheus Communications Links CyrusOne Data Centers
Houston-based fiber networking firm Alpheus Communications has linked up multiple Texas data centers run by Dallas-based CyrusOne, to add additional redundancy to customers using those data centers, Alpheus said this week. Alpheus said that it has added multiple connections in three CyrusOne data centers, including two in Houston, and one in Dallas. The move gives users at those three data centers ability to access the Alpheus fiber network. Most data center providers, including CyrusOne, offer up multiple paths to their data centers, to ensure redundancy, reliability, and also to allow for greater bandwidth for customers.
